last year lost a bay tree, I thought it was from the harsh winter. I replaced it with two new ones and took extra care covering whenever a frost was forecast. However the same has happened, the stems that connect the leaf to the branch die back first, then the leaf. It has many dead leaves, that are brittle and fall of, I have been pruning away the dead branches and now the tree is looking rather sad. They are the lollypop sort in pots, I was wondering is this a disease or frost damage and what are there chances of recovering. Any answers please or I might just stick to box they seem to be much easier to look after.
